About Us

Back in 1921 a small group of local Broomehill residents and farmers called a meeting and formed the Broomehill & District Co-operative Co. Ltd.

The fledgling company, having survived the depression years and a world war, decided to extend its operations to Katanning. In 1943 it purchased a local business from H. Smith & Son and renamed the company Broomehill & Katanning District Co-operative Co. Ltd.

In 1946 the Woodanilling Co-operative amalgamated with the company to form the BKW (Broomehill, Katanning, Woodanilling) Co-operative Limited – as it is known today. Over the years the Katanning business has continued to grow and expand with a new hardware complex being completed in 2001.

Today, as it started in Broomehill all those years ago, The Co-op has remained a local community owned business – your business – providing old fashioned country service at Competitive prices.
